. a compelling message as to why they should throw out barack obama because the economy in ohio is doing better than it is in other parts of the country. >> it is and the question is, who gets the credit ryan joins me now along with roland martin. roland, that was the kind of, you're not afraid to say what you think. a kick in the you know, at least they're saying they feel the way they feel. >> actually, honesty is always the best policy. it's amazing they are making sarah palin out to look like a you know, profit, if you will, when she said they should go rogue. they're going to have to get more aggressive in this campaign in order to close this gap. these debates are going to be critical, but again, these ceo frankly is giving a muddy story if you will as to why he should be the person. i love boxing, erin and they say you don't win the belt of the champion on points. you take it and mitt romney hasn't done that. he has to take it if he wants to win the presidency. >> it makes sense, but ryan, what in the world is he supposed to do? it sounds like he tried to be aggressive. after the attacks
and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. maybe right up to election day americans will still be making up their minds. >> let's turn to overseas. i know there are some things that concern you, but let me first ask you about libya, the deaths of those four americans, including the american ambassador to libya on september 11th. friday we got the administration sort of definitive statement this looks as though it was a preplanned attack by a terrorist group and some of whom were sympathetic to al qaeda. why do you think and are you bothered that it has taken them this long from september 11th to now to get to this c
the real economy is very important to us. in missouri we have a strong industrial rail process where you have a lot of goods across our state. we have work to improve the system, get rid of bottlenecks. for example, the osage river where we are now in the process of building a bridge that we can get another land we don't have slowdowns. the first step is to make sure we don't get slowdowns so when we look to more possibilities for passenger rail travel, that we have a system to deliver on time. so we're looking at that. we've also worked with illinois because anybody that looks at the bigger picture of our country will see getting the first step from chicago to st. louis is never going to attract the resources for high-speed rail across their state. that's why we worked with the state of the one i and others to get the initial project completed, while at the same time working to improve our network here for on-time efforts. you know, all of that is part of a long-term transportation focus that will continue to provide us a competitive economy. >> dave spence. >> i think it sounds great i
. it is crippling the iranian economy but it hasn't stopped them from getting nuclear weapons. we both agree that is the ultimate goal. the united states has wanted to bring them to the negotiating table. that has not happened, either. the israelis are almost feeling as though both the mentality and the course of actions that the u.s. has taken and the west in general have been naive. >>shepard: factoring in is the fact that so many analysts with great experience and knowledge of the situation here are of the belief that you cannot stop this by bombing. it will take something else. >>reporter: right. that's tech did you want to look at that exact point look at the people of iran and what they are saying. right before mahmoud ahmadinejad got on a plane to come to the u.n. meeting, the people of iran, and i have been on so many blogs and twitter and facebook, where are we going? we have so many problems at home to address. you do not need to go to the u.n. and talk about world problems and reforming of the global community as has been repeated on interviews and the at podium at the u.n. there
on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the debate, with questions 1, two, and 3. then they move on to the topic of health care, which has major economic impact, the role of government in our society, and the final segment will be on the governing cells of the candidates. jim lehrer can assign the final questions. there was a coin toss to decide who would take the first question. president obama has won that and will take the first question. we would like to involve you in the process and talk about this important debate, what you will be looking for from candidates, whether or not you have already made your decision. most particularly, if you had a chance to ask a question on this domestic policy debate, what would you most want to know from these two men? let's introduce you to our first guest. from inside the debate are -- the senior political reporter for yahoo news, who has been on the campaign trail with governor romney. >let me start with a pc filed recently, is senseless and that this is all personal between these two men -- saying this is all personal between these two m
the current state of the election and plenty of people are concerned about the trends and the same economy in these times. most important of them who are the people who will show up to the polls in november. we want to have a follow-up discussion about economics, demographics, and the expectations for 2012. this is a follow-up for what was released in november of last year. with that, i am pleased to introduce my colleagues. the co-authors of the report they are releasing at www.american progress.org. after this presentation, you have a conversation with our panel and we look forward to hearing from you as well. i encourage you to follow the conversation. our guests recent writings include the european paradox and the decline of the working class and the rise of the mass upper-middle-class. he holds a degree in sociology from university of wisconsin, madison. i say about the game yesterday. [laughter] please welcome rich. [applause] >> thank you, everybody for coming. as daniella mentioned, this is about the report to be released last november. there is obviously a you -- adding about ideo
: steve, on the economy specifically, a majority of voters disapprove of the handling of the economy by the president. take a look at this. almost 60% think his economic policies have actually hurt the economy or made no difference at all and that of course is by far the number one issue yet 50% say he deserves to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in
of the economy, and if that stops jobs are going to stop, too and so is everything else. >> larry, i think those are very good points. i would argue most of the weakness we are seeing in the manufacturing side is a function of much weaker export s because of weakness in europe and asia. i think what we are seeing in the latest chicago data is a catchup with all the other weakness we had seen in earlier surveys. i think the economy is weak. it's not strong by any means but the labor market looks like it is growing. i don't think it will rollover from modest job growth. claims are ploe low and tax receipts are improving. >> 1 30i7b 3% depend we got earlier this weak. a lot of people would call ate growth recession. i want to ask is this stall-speed or an actual recession? >> i think we have slowed since the 1.3% second quarter number larry. we are seeing durable goods orders down in july and august. we are seeing the pmi is down. importantly, europe is moving in to a recession. germany is now in recession and china is not doing its stimulus. you have a coordinated global slow down starts now and i
will not be looking to score a knockout tonight but will instead zero in on the president's handling of the economy. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked tough the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it s
or the leaked video or stuart stevens or the improving economy or media bias or distorted polls or the message or mormonism, it's mitt." what does mitt romney have to do in this first debate to change the narrative that he is, in fact, a flawed candidate? >> i think it's sort of stating the obvious. in every campaign where there are problems, be it staff problems, be it message problems, there's always a lot of criticism that goes around it. ultimately, the candidate is responsible and it all comes from the top. so i think to conclude that mitt romney is responsible for whatever problems he had is probably an easy conclusion to have to make. obviously, in the debates, he's going to have to perform well, he's going to have to perform succinctly, and we've seen him do that in the past, as you have been discussing. he has been able to go on -- all throughout the republican primaries, he was able to at moments when expectations for him were extremely low, go in and surpass them. and if he keeps his cool and he knows his stuff, i think he'll probably be able to do that on wednesday. >> who has the
to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom line, there's no question as to who you would rather be here, right? you would rather be president obama than mitt romney looking at these numbers. that plus 19 advantage that the president has on looking out for the middle class, that is a death nail for mr. romney's campaign if he cannot turn that around. but i think looking ahead to tonight's debate, there is a real opportunity in the huge disconnect in the electorate, in a way that reflects a real risk for president obama. there's this huge disconnect between mr. obama's best number with voters and one of his worst numbers. which is that president obama has so far not been able
to find work in today's economy. too many of those whore payc.ng are liaycheck to acare ling in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. we shoul'teasure compassion by how many pele are on wee. hosuomio by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. i'm mitt romney, and i approved this message. >> i think that ad just makes my odorning, it's thursday, september 27th, as you take a look at a wet times square in new york city. i'm in chicago this morning, but with us in new york city wh willie geist, our national affairs editor for "new york" magazine andnbit analyst, john heilemann. also former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve ratner and nbc news chief affairs correspondent and ht of "andrea mitchell reports." >> we have affairs. >> andrea mitchell. aninasto f "the politico playbook," executive executor jim vandehei. of course, willie, we've got a lot to talk about. let's start really quickly with the refs! >> they're back. >
's economy is dead flat, teetering on recession. 10-year high for unemployment and france puts in place huge tax increases. bill: i'm reading the two measures bringing around half a billion euros. >> that's it. >> what will that do for them? >> not much. there are other taxes as well which will bring in a total they think of 20 billion euros. bill: higher tax rates on dividends? >> dividends, capital gains, dividends, profits, reinvestment of capital, interest you name it. bill: here is a query for you. are they cutting spending at all? >> by about $10 billion euros. $20 billion worth of tax increases. $10 billion worth of spending cuts gives you a 30 billion euro reduction they think in the budget deficit. bill: well on the spending cuts, how much resistance was there? >> there is going to be a lot of resistance. in france there is really a cradle to grave security system and the state is at the very center of the economy. when the state starts cutting into to spending, cutting down on spending, there will be some resistance and it will be seen on the streets. bill: do you expect the wealth
on domestic issues including the economy and jobs. the second debate on the campus of hofstra university. politico has this piece about jim leher. for the first time in the 2012 campaign, the president and mitt romney will face each other in what many consider the most important even between now and november 6. for the 12th time in the history of debates, jim leher has been asked to serve as moderator making him the most experienced a moderator and the modern history, he is uniquely suited according to his contemporary. at a time when the electorate is as divided as ever and wind -- media scrutiny is -- next is hayley. welcome to the program. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i am one of the people who spend every summer for the last few summers going around the nation asking questions. my main question is, what do people think politically and what they are paying attention to. you say are a third party is relevant, yes, they are. they will never get any kind of support as long as the american people are more interested in things like "dancing with the stars." that is a
heart the middle-class and how to build an economy that works for the middle-class in this country. that is fundamentally what looking for. >> chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in boston. paul ryan is playing the old expectation games on lower xfgss for governor romney but chris christie is calling the debate a game changer. i wonder who is right. >> reporter: you got surrogates talking a lot today. they will continue until wednesday when the priangs can go face to face. today governor romney is doing his debate. president obama has arrived in las vegas and getting ready for the showdown. romney will be in denver in advantages of this. paul ryan was talking about the romney ryan ticket new framework for the race. they said referendum on president obama's record. but it's decide how to best deal with the competent. here is paul ryan trying to set the stage. >> we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we can stick with the failed policies of last four years for the next four years or a brighter futur
with hundreds of billions of dollars and most of the discretionary spending cuts would drive the economy back into recession and cost too many jobs of the other hand would also go a long way to produce budget deficits. even by washington standards that seems pretty important. to discuss the cliff and its consequences of a panel of the four but it did it cover in budget watchers. bob greenstein is on the senate priorities and that of president obama's transition team policy work. douglas holtz-eakin is president of the american action forum and headed the domestic policy staff in the campaign ad was the director of the congressional budget office. donald marron is the director of the tax policy center and member of george bush's advisor and acting director of cbo and finally, digamma rogers blogs as an economist and was the chief economist of the house budget committee for the democratic staff of the house ways and means committee. the format today will be relatively straightforward. each of the panelists will speak for five minutes. i will ask some questions and we will get a discussion going
they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president obama seems to have the advantage in this state, and, of course, the dnc held their convention there back in 2008. how much does it matter to have the hometown advantage, to have the people who are sitting in that audience and perhaps you are ahead in the polls? does it make that much difference in a debate setting? >> well, he certainly has a little bit of a lead right now, according to the latest cnn poll of po
on monday. he is interviewed by richard wolf on the economy, the deficit, and debt and how it has changed since he ran for president in 1992. that is monday night on c-span and c-span radio at 9:00 p.m. eastern. find the article in usa today on monday at usatoday.com. >> ahead of next week's first presidential debate, at the center for american progress looked at both your demographics and how they affect campaign strategy. the report also talks about perceptions of the economy, medicare, and hispanic voters. this is 1.5 hours. >> good afternoon. i am buys president for american values and new communities. i want to thank you for the revisited.p i want to wish you a happy book your registration day. i am sure everyone is registered to vote. this is the list of by two great teams. two weeks before the election, i know that may seem like a very short time. in politics it is a lifetime. we were interesting digging into what is happening in this space. what trends are occurring? how do people feel about the economy? you are the people who show up to the polls in november? we want to have a di
's focus is domestic. >> yep. >> no bigger domestic issue than the economy, as we know. we'll have a rather open format. do you think we'll actually hear a specific from mr. romney on how he plans for a revenue-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of t
hunt at the u.n.. martha: take a look at the u.s. economy this morning. there is a new report that has some not very good news on this. families are seeing a lot less money in their paychecks according to this new report. it finds the median household income fell by 1.1% to under $51,000 last month. you take a look at the chart on this since 2009 and it is not a pretty picture. it is a significant drop since the president came into office. stuart varney joins me now. he is the host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, good morning. that's a tough chart. >> yes, it is a tough chart. it paints a picture of real distress in middle america. buying power down, our standard of living falling and hardship, hardship right there in the middle of america is actually give gettingous. -- getting worse. let me give you key number. from the start of the obama administration the median household income in america has fallen, repeat, fallen, down around $4,000. we've not seen this kind of decline over a long period of time, three, four years, we have not seen this before. if you
some statements about the economy already in the opening remarks. so let's start with that. as governor nixon noted, the jobs increased 18,000 nearly from july to august. but the number of people in the civilian labor force, those working unemployed but actively working fell by 11,000 during the same period. so let's start off with this question. do you believe that the economy is improving or lagging behind, and what three specific things would you do to create more jobs and misery. governor nixon, your first. nixon: we are seeing that progress necessary to move forward once the jobs bill got into effect in september of 09 we have had an unemployment rate below the national leverage and today's numbers showing not only this last month gaining 17,900 jobs but also that means the third most new jobs of any state in the country shows we are beginning to make progress and it is built on a solid, solid rock of fiscal discipline, holding the line on taxes, focusing our attention on industries to make a difference. for example, that is why i call the legislature back into the special session
. the governor earlier today focused on the economy. >> do we really want four more years with 23 million americans struggling to find a good job? >> no! >> i mean, do we want four more years where half the kids coming out of college can't find work or college-level work? >> no! >> do we want four more years where every single year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want four more years of trillion dollar deficits? >> no! >> yeah, i don't believe we can afford four more years like the last four years. the people of ohio are going to say loud and clear on november 6th we can't afford four more years, we must do better. [cheers and applause] megyn: well, one of the political writers focused on the romney change today is chris stirewalt, fox news digital politics editor. chris, there is a shift in the romney approach. describe exactly what we're seeing. >> well, what you're seeing is a campaign that had previously been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that m
the fallout of the crisis threatens the u.s. economy on your 401k. amy kellogg joins us from london with more. >> reporter: it affects your 401k was the markets of course are corelated and the markets in europe are down. also the s&p derives a significance portion of its earnings from european then american companies have operations overseas that make money in europe, therefore if the economy here is in a bad way that hurts americans. there was this big strike in greece today that got violent when some black-hooded anarchists kind of took advantage of the situation, throwing gasoline bombs at police. they used a general strike and march as a vehicle to just rage against authority. over 50,000 people came out. they are processing the further cuts that are coming their way . many in greece are generally desperate now having seen their salaries drop by more than 20% already since austerity became a way of life in greece. social safety networks are not able to save people. one person at the demonstration was quoted as saying, we are bleeding, we can't take it any more. the new conservative-led co
. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> reporter: in scrubbing through the demographics, the regional numbers, here's one thing they will like at the obama campaign. among white voters nationally, the president gets 41%. governor romney gets 56%. gove
$50,000. i also want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of the economy. >> we need to spread the wealth around. in other words, we're going to take joseph money, give it to signature obama and let him spread the wealth around. the whole premise behind the plans are class warfare, but spread the wealth around. i want small businesses that would receive an increase in their taxes. why would you want to increase anybody's taxes right now? these people are going to create jobs unless you take that money for him and spread the wealth around. i am not going to do that. >> number one, i want to cut taxes for 90 5% of americans. it is sure my friend and supporter warren buffett could afford to pay a low tax. in order to give taxes. then exxon mobil which made record profits over the last several quarters, it they can afford to pay a little more so that ordinary families who are hurting out there tried to figure out how they're going to save for their kids' college educations, and they need a break. look. nobody likes taxes. i would for for that no one pays them
into the economy and in many cases, ideology. mitt romney would be smart to seize on the libyan controversy as part of an overall competence challenge to mr. obama. if the economy remains bad and it does just check outearnings from ford and gm today, and america's overseas strategy is wobbling, which is seems to be, governor romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might even be responsible for murdering ambassador stevens. talking points believes many voters are still persuadable. that support for the president is thin among some independents. recent rasmussen p
relevant is the president's policies and how they are affecting the economy today, how they are affecting people's bottom line, how they are affecting household incomes. >> does this show a priority list difference, perhaps some of the conservative commentators, chip, wanting to find their a ha moment to get back, i guess, that the 47% video of romney as opposed to what kevin madden says answered the campaign would like to talking about, the priorities getting this economy turned around? is there a divide within conservatives in the party on how to fight back? >> when you are running a campaign and there's other groups doing everything, always doing something else. kevson very smart, keeping it focused on jobs and the economy and the romney campaign. and i think the only a ha is going to matter today about 9:01 when the debate starts and these two guys are on the same stage together. i think we are not going to be talking about videos or gotcha videos or anything else tomorrow or tonight or tomorrow, it is going to be about the debate it is going to be reset about 9:01 tonight. >> i don't
